Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Her eight-year-old son didn't want to leave anyone out since he knows how that feels

--by KayStarr6, posted May 20, 2017
My eight-year-old son wanted to make goody bags for all the residents of a nearby nursing home. He didn't want to leave anyone out as he knows what it is to be left out (he has Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome, Autism, feeding tube dependent, as well as many other things so he's left out a lot).

So he wanted to make sure we did something for everyone. We live on a fixed income so we had to do some bargain shopping but, we made up 150 bags for them. We also included some fake roses for the nurses. I am so proud of my son.

You should be so proud of your son and i'm sure there's no greater feeling than knowing you've made a difference or brightened someone's day - just because. Thank you for allowing me and my family to see such wonderful acts of kindness. I often find the best way to teach my children is by showing them and this is perfect.
